Green Birthday Cupcake Treat Purse

Well this started out as a project for today's LIMITED SUPPLY CHALLENGE - Bug Me and as I was ready to load I reread to make sure I was within the challenge and guess what, NOT! as this was to "make a card" and I have to get to work so no time to redo. I will have to do another one later tonight but for now I emailed Jeanne the challenge host and she said, leave it like it is, I love projects. What I did was remove the cupcake image from my Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Treat Purse and restamped another image clearly needing more practice at the frosting technique. Well I still do need more practice at it but this is a little better and no where near as heavy as the 1st attempt. I added a bit of water to my mix still available and thinned it out a bit too much I think. Oh well. Nothing like practice or recycling for Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT - Go Green. I applied some liquid pearl ex to the candle and heated it as well. WOW, it bubbled and gave me a melted candle wax look. Love that. My butterfly was for my bug and it is stamped in rose red then rolled in artichoke ink, stamped, cut out and attached. I also added a couple of rhinestones. For the treat, well I eat very little sweets, I know you can not believe that, but it is true. I have a couple of weaknesses though, and one of them is the candy coated malted milk balls this time of year. Yea well I can not find any this yr. Who stole them all, the Easster bunny, LOL? I found a bag full of speckled eggs and went "YEH!" then read and they were bubble gum. YUK!, got them anyway so that is what is in the bag. Grands will love that right? I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Black Rose Artichokes.All images can be found at TREEHOUSE STAMP COMPANY store. Have a wonderful weekend.
